    Yes, you. You BYC people.

    I can't believe that there is such an amazing group of such wonderful, helpful, encouraging people!

    I have never had chickens before. My 4 little ladies are now happily living the good life out in their coop, after having spent a successful brooding period in my family room. Thanks to all the information and support on this forum I felt confident throughout the whole process. If I couldn't find information I needed I posted a question, and always had rapid responses.

    I had no idea chickens could be so much fun. I just was outside checking on them and they BEGGED me for "just a little time" free ranging. (they already spent a good chunk of the day outside the run)
    So, of course, I let them. I came back inside and tended to dinner, then went back out to the yard. All four of them came running to me and crowded around me, nibbling the grass by my feet. They really do make me smile. Now, if only Johnny Depp could remember where the door to the coop is........

    So, from the bottom of my heart, Thank You!! [​IMG]

    Glad you found what you needed here at the BYC! You've embarked on a lifelong obsession, I'm sure, just like most of us. Chickens surprise and amaze me daily. Never realized how much fun they could be when I first got them.

    I want to extend my thanks as well... I have learned more here than I could glean off of any of the many chicken books I've read, and over my months (years) of research and reading here I now feel that I am able to provide the best care for my new chickens. [​IMG]

    My thanks too! I've been reading and learning and laughing myself silly over some of these posts and crying over some others. I have gleaned a lot of knowledge here and when the time finally comes that I have chickens I know that when panic strikes over something I don't know that others here will share their knowledge and help me over the rough spots.

    This forum rocks! My hats off as well to those who make it possible for crazy chicken people to have a place to gather.

    I couldn't agree more. The people here are always ready to help a new chicken owner. I belong to a Great Dane forum and I seriously can not believe how preachy those people are. everyone thinks they know everything about Danes and don't mind telling you that you are wrong if you don't agree with them. Everyone here has been great answering our questions and giving advise. So thank you all very much.
